Botox in NY for wrinkles and frown lines related to muscle contraction
Botox (botulinum toxin type A) is a purified protein that works by relaxing muscles that cause expression lines and wrinkles. It works best for the vertical creases between the eyebrows (glabella), wrinkles that radiate from the outer corner of the eyelids (crow’s feet), and horizontal forehead wrinkles.
By reducing the strength of the muscles that pull the eyebrows downward, a “Botox brow lift” can raise the height and the arch of the brows.
Dysport and Xeomin are other brand names for botulinum toxin A and they work in the same way as Botox. In his NY offices, Dr. Kotlus offers both Botox and Dysport.
Botox results typically last from 3 to 6 months.
Dermal fillers for creases and loss of volume
Filler treatments add volume and firmness to the skin with the injection of FDA-approved, biocompatible gels. Injectable fillers reduce wrinkles, rejuvenate areas where fat has been lost (cheeks, temples, under-eyes), and improve asymmetries. Fillers are also used to plump and reshape thinning lips.
Hyaluronic acid is the primary ingredient of the most popular fillers. These include Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Defyne, Restylane Refyne, Revanesse Versa, Juvederm Voluma and Belotero Balance. Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are soft and possess a high level of safety because they can be rapidly reversed with hyaluronidase. Most HA fillers last between 6 – 18 months depending on the filler composition and the location of placement.
Sculptra is a longer-lasting volumizing filler consisting of Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA) and can provide rejuvenative volume for years in areas where fat has been lost with age, particularly the cheeks.
Dr. Kotlus uses micro-cannula techniques in his NY offices help to reduce downtime by delivering filler under the skin with a mini-tube instead of a needle, significantly lowering the likelihood of bruising.
Laser skin resurfacing for fine lines and sun damage
Laser treatments help to remove or reduce wrinkles and sun damage with precisely delivered energy. The laser creates micro-injuries in the skin that stimulates collagen growth and remodeling with the end result of smoother, younger-looking skin. Laser resurfacing works best in light to medium skin types.
Dr. Kotlus uses both the erbium laser and the carbon dioxide (CO2) in his NY offices to smooth the skin. The latest skin laser treatments use fractional technology that leaves a percentage of uninjured skin behind, allowing for more rapid healing and shorter downtime. He offers the ActiveFX and DeepFX laser for the best fractional skin resurfacing benefits. The results can last for years with proper sun precautions and topical skin maintenance.
Microneedling for younger-looking skin
Microneedling is a laser-free option to achieve smoother, fresher-looking skin. This modern procedure uses a medical-grade device to create microscopic injuries in your skin’s surface to boost the levels of collagen and elastin that are lost with age. This treatment is great for busy people who don’t want a lengthy recovery but want to improve the quality of their skin.
Microneedling is effective for:
- preventing wrinkles and fine lines
- improving skin texture
- reducing acne scars
- minimizing the appearance of stretch marks
- laser-free skin resurfacing for darker skin types
Dr. Kotlus performs microneedling in his Manhattan office.
